Last night’s Mets loss against the Nationals may or may not be the low point of this roller coaster ride of a season. It is obvious that both the players – as well as the fans are frustrated with the lack of offense.
So without further ado here are the 5 songs that best describe this Mets team over the past week.
5.”One Bourbon, One Scotch, And One Beer” by George Thourogood. Lets face it we all could use a stiff drink right about now !
4. “Same Old Situation” by Motley Crue. Exciting first half that gives the fans delusions of grandeur – check . Second half meltdown – double check !
3. “Running On Empty” by Jackson Browne. That song best fits the teams lack of offense.
2. “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. Pass the Prozac please !
And at number one with a bullet – ” Funeral For A Friend (Love Lies Bleeding)” by Elton John. Because let’s face it, this team is dead for it is already dead !!
Any songs that you feel deserve mention ? Feel free to post it in the comments section.
And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Starting pitcher from the ’78 season, Mickey Lolich is 72(1940). Lolich was the key player in one of the worst Mets trade ever. The Mets obtained him before the ’76 season for fan favorite, Rusty Staub.
Utility infielder from the ’80 season, Mario Ramirez is 55 (1957).
Reserve outfielder from the ’90 season, Keith Hughes is 49 (1963).
Back up shortstop from the ’93 season, Tito Navarro is 42 (1970).
On of the most disliked players to ever wear a Mets jersey, second baseman Luis Castillo, is 37 (1975). “Slappy” as time goes on I personally can never forgive you for dropping that catch against the Yankees in ’09 !
Mo Vaughn feels that the song that best describes the Mets of late is “Surrender” by Cheap Trick !!!
